and trauma is going to last for years and for some of these families, forever. the community of newtown is, it's doing its best, as we heard a few moments ago, it's doing its best to heal. but what can be done to help the young children and families involved in yesterday's horrific shootings? joining me now from washington, d.c., psychiatrist dr. josh weiner. dr. weiner, i want to start with something that we've been talking about off and on throughout the past couple of hours here. gun control, obviously that is going to be a discussion that is had in washington, d.c., hopefully over the next few weeks and months. but mental health in this country is not a topic that is discussed in public, at least, a great deal. how much of the conversation should be centered on that? >> to me, i think the conversation should actually start with focusing on the mental health aspect. if you want to fight crime and you want to fight the use of guns and violence, you need to start by mental health treatment. you need to improve the access to care that a lot of people have. you need to take a look at what's
on our faces, even today the horror of newtown remains unspeakable. and as congresswoman mccarthy said, we have been here before. over and over again calling for action after these terrible massacres. but as she also said, this time it's different. this time we had 20 little beautiful angels and their teachers taken from us. and finally, our nation seems to realize collectively that it's the time to have a deep national conversation. now is the time for comprehensive solution, one that talks about our violent culture, our mental health system, and that talks about really doing something about gun violence. when we return in january, we are all planning to work hard together on a solution, on all of us solutions, but right now we can do something this week before congress leaves. we can pass legislation that will be a first and a reasonable step to help protect our children and to help show that congress has the will to begin stopping these massacres. this week we can bring to the floor a bill that congresswoman mccarthy and i introduced some months ago, co-sponsored by so many of our f

and they can't get up. on social issues and now fiscal issues even more. >> you have newtown and the absolute fear to speak out -- not against the nra -- to speak out against survivalists. to speak out against people that want to buy assault weapon, to speak out against people -- i mean, great. if you really do -- if you believe that james madison wrote the bill of rights so people would have the ability to squeeze off that many rounds and have these extended magazine clips, if that's your america living it, that's your america. god bless you. good luck with that. if you really believe the federal government's coming, you're going to kick down your doors, what are you going to do? are you going to shoot that weapon up at the drone? lots of luck. it's not going to help you. but that's where they're positioning themselves. they don't speak out against the slaughter of 20 young children and doing anything about that because they're afraid they may offend sur vooifrlivivalists an rushing out going to walmart and buying assault weapons. they're not going to stand up to so many of these extreme for

the post-newtown witch hunt the last week. it's unfortunate. this should be a time of sober reflection and an inclusive time for every american, with a diverse viewpoint, to be a participant in the national conversation about gun violence, about the culture, and somehow so many people, particularly in the crazed anti-gun liberal media, have demonized the n.r.a. and its millions of law abiding, peaceful gun owners who are practicing their constitutionally protected second amendment rights. self-defense, as so many people out there know, is oft often, and they put forth some good ideas, good ideas that have been embraced across the country in school districts in oklahoma, in texas. there are many, many, many armed teachers in this country and they deserve a voice, too. >> clayton: absolutely. you talk about a reasoned discussion though, that's what many conservatives thought was missing from this press conference and you mentioned the liberal media, but the new york post in the front page called him a loon, the n.r.a. loon in a bizarre rant over newtown and they felt what was missing-- i

our kids act of 2012. as we are too painfully reminded this week by the horrific tragedy in newtown, connecticut, for all the good this nation has done to lift up children we still have much more work to do. so, mr. speaker, before i get into my remarks about the bill, i first want to extend my heartfelt condolences to the victims and their loved ones struggling as we all are to understand this senseless assault on children and their educators. and while newtown is rightly receiving the nation's attention, what goes unnoticed far too often is the number of children that die each year in this country as a result of abuse and neglect. sadly their deaths often come at the hands of those who should be caring for them the most. state reports indicate that more than 1,500 children in the u.s. died from abuse or neglect in fiscal year 2010. and research shows that these reports may significantly understate the actual number of these fatalities. congress should do what it can to prevent these tragedies which is why this legislation is before us today. this legislation is a result of careful

talk this morning has been on newtown and potential changes to a gun laws. before we move into the fiscal issues, what is your take on the current mood in the country and the potential mood in congress on changing the gun laws? guest: peter, it's a tragic situation. i have a for our children 17 and under, including a 6-year-old -- four children. so it's pretty close to home. the mood i see in congress, i hope that we don't move in haste and do things we might regret. i hope we let folks mourn and we will look at that. i think it's an individual problem. we have mental illness issues tied into this that are separate, but do impact the situation, obviously. most of my constituents, i don't think i have had anyone to call into my office to say that we should get changes in federal gun laws. host: what is your rating? guest: i have a 100% rating. and i'm a gun owner. i have an 11-year-old and 6- year-old son. we went hunting during pheasant season. it's important that parents train their children in their use and to respect and understand the use of guns if you are going to ha
that. host: a poll was done on top stories. presidential election, followed by what happened in newtown, then the attack in libya down the list. guest: it is in the top 10 but it has never become the focus. ironically, for those who think it is a scandal -- i remember some people said the watergate of our time. mitt romney had every opportunity and the debates to make hay with this issue and did not do it. host: mike, good morning. caller: good morning. mr. williams, merry christmas. after obama campaign in to one 2008 to reduce the deficit and then double it, do you think the american electorate was cognizant of the fact that obama doubled in it instead of cutting it in half? why don't the american people care about the debt of the united states of america? guest: i do think they care about it. the economy is the number-one issue. guess what? then it comes down to things like jobs. then you come to the debt. it is not that americans are out of touch with the idea that the government is spending more money than we are taking in. there is lots of concern about whether or not the chinese
, we got a three here. caller: i am about an hour from newtown. italy makes a difference if she did not have her firearms secured. -- it only makes a difference if she did not have her firearms secured. host: thanks for your time. guest: james is right about the issue with serial numbers on various parts. particularly assault rifles and can be reassembled in various ways. there are things that can be done. you can step serial numbers on various parts of the action of the gun. most guns used in crime are handguns. those have less squabble parts -- swappable parts. this point about education, that is certainly right. everyone would be a lot safer if gun owners were required to go through some sort of safety training. a lot of folks to not go through training because there are no rules in most states requiring them to do so. it is very difficult to know whether the person who is purchasing a firearm and knows what they're doing with it and knows how to secure it. that is why a lot of these guns and up being used inadvertently or otherwise in crime or accidental shootings. host:a tweet,
